Author Bio:
Read first committed her life to the Lord Jesus Christ in the fall of 1979, while she was in the United States Marine Corps. She was stationed in Hawaii, but while on a temporary assignment to Yuma, Arizona the Iranian students seized the American Embassy in Tehran, and had taken several American hostages. A special friend of hers was on a six-month deployment to Japan, and was placed on red alert. He was prepared to go to Iran at a moment's notice, and she felt so helpless to do anything about it. That was such an uncertain time in her life, and as unbelievable as it may sound, Read was actually thankful for the "Iranian Crisis," because it was that momentous event that caused her to see the great need for her Savior.

About that same time, a young Marine, whom she had never met, came up to her as she was leaving her barracks in Yuma and handed her a Bible and said, "Here, I think you need to read this." He just walked away, and Read never saw him again, but she will never forget him! That brief encounter was a major turning point in Read's life and she did take his advice. Read started reading and studying the Bible, but that was just the beginning of her walk with God...

Review Excerpts



Walking With the Enemy: A Testimony

by C. Read


"An inherently fascinating, thoroughly absorbing, candidly personal story...

very highly recommended for personal, church, community,

and academic  library collections..."

Midwest Book Review


"This author should be commended for bringing her struggle to light in order to make others aware of the evil that is still, unfortunately, operating among us." Feathered Quill Book Reviews


"‘Just because you believe something doesn’t make it true’ ...is the heart of the book. We can feel the weight of this battle and applaud the author for the bravery in sharing this growth journey. Pace is stellar, the book engaging from cover to cover. “Judge, 25th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards.”


“Designed to be an inspirational story for those seduced, at times literally, by a cult,
WALKING WITH THE ENEMY does have relevance for those wanting out. But Read’s relentless Manichaeism, and reduction of everything down to God vs. Satan, will repel readers of less fundamentalist persuasion…

If there is a phrase that runs throughout this sincere, but at the same time, somehow repellent memoir/spiritual journey book, then it would be ‘the Devil can quote scripture.’

…And if, as Read attests, the devil is everywhere, and in all guises, especially those who brandish Bibles, then the only way out is to give oneself completely over to God, without reservations.” —IndieReader Reviewer

"Walking with the Enemy is Read’s story of a three-year engagement with a religious cult and the miraculous event that gave her the courage to escape.


…important narrative for any Christian believer, and might be of particular interest to anyone who is a survivor of a religious cult." –Foreword Reviews


"Read offers her personal tale of religious awakening, including her experiences with people whom she says were falsely serving Jesus Christ....

Debut author Read’s story is clearly heartfelt... 

Readers will likely be convinced of the author’s devoutness early on, which she bolsters with many biblical references..." ─Kirkus Reviews


"An inherently fascinating, thoroughly absorbing, candidly personal story...  


Simply stated, "Walking With the Enemy: A Testimony" is very highly recommended for personal, church, community, and academic library collections." ─Midwest Book Reviews
